16 October: International Day of Action for Peoples’ Food Sovereignty and against Transnational Corporations
16 October 2019 @ 8 h 00 min - 25 October 2019 @ 17 h 00 min BST
This October 16, the International Day of Action for Peoples’ Food Sovereignty and against Transnational corporations, we call for action by organised social movements, unions, universities, the media and people’s governments that prioritise their peoples.
We call for increased pressure to enforce farmers’ rights and for public policies based on food sovereignty and not on the interests of the global market and agribusiness. There can be no food sovereignty without respect for peasant rights. There can be no food sovereignty without agrarian reform and social justice, organise actions in the territories, denunciation mobilisations, forums, seminars, farmers’ fairs, film screenings, all expressions are important to demand the implementation of peasant rights through land reform and social justice.
Send us all the actions planned for this day to our address firstname.lastname@example.org, we want to make them visible on our global action map. Also send us articles, audio, photos and videos of all the actions to be published on our website and on ViaCampesinaTV.
